Beginning in June, rfxcel customers can use the service to confirm their authorized trading partner status in saleable return verifications.
Reno, Nevada, June 3, 2021 (EINPRSSWIRE). rfxcel, part of Antares Vision Group and a global leader in digital supply chain traceability solutions, today announced it would integrate the Spherity Credentialing Service into its Verification Router Service (VRS) solution, enabling companies to verify their authorized trading partner (ATP) status per requirements in the U.S. Drug Supply Chain Security Act (DSCSA).
rfxcel customers can begin using the service in June. As mandated by the DSCSA, only ATPs will be permitted to exchange information in the U.S. pharmaceutical supply chain starting on November 27, 2023.
The Spherity Credentialing Service uses blockchain technology to establish a secure, verifiable digital enterprise identity for every ATP. By integrating the service into its VRS solution, rfxcel customers can ensure secure, authenticated data exchange with other ATPs and verify they have the credentials required by the DSCSA, including state licenses and U.S. Food and Drug Administration Entity Identifiers (FEIs).
Herb Wong, vice president of marketing and strategic initiatives at rfxcel, said the partnership builds on the relationship built with Spherity in the Open Credentialing Initiative (OCI), a user group comprising industry stakeholders working on rolling out, standardizing, and exploring credential-based implementations in the pharmaceutical supply chain.
“rfxcel is excited to partner with Spherity to ensure the integrity of both the physical and digital supply chain,” he said. “The Spherity Credentialing Service is the most comprehensive effort to address the upcoming ATP requirement for DSCSA and is a good match with our industry-leading VRS solution. Spherity’s leadership in the OCI was impressive, and rfxcel looks forward to offering our customers these complementary solutions this summer.”
Spherity CEO Dr. Carsten Stöcker said, “rfxcel, as an innovation pioneer in the industry, and Spherity have been a good fit from the very beginning, since the start of the collaboration. We are now very proud that rfxcel is offering our new Spherity Credentialing Service to their customers and look forward to delivering further integrations to establish trust in supply chains.”
